“A fresh sauce, perfect for using up that bumper crop of cherry tomatoes!” - by Becca Miller
Original recipe yields 2 servings
- Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Place the cherry tomatoes on a baking sheet, and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle on the oregano, salt, and pepper, and roll the cherry tomatoes around a few times to coat with the seasoned oil. Bake in the preheated oven until the tomatoes begin to burst, about 15 minutes.
- Cook and drain the tortellini according to package directions, and set aside in a serving dish.
- In a skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil over medium-low heat, and cook and stir the garlic until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat, and stir in the pesto and roasted tomatoes. Smash the tomatoes with a fork to break open, stir to combine, and pour the sauce over the tortellini. Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese and torn basil leaves.
